I wonder if a good chunk of the issues boil down to a bad group of batteries. I know first-hand that Subarus do crazy non-sensical things when running on weakened batteries, even if the alternator works perfectly. Speaking of alternators, I wonder since the hybrids don't have one, does that exacerbate any problems?We leave one or both doors open on our 2018 Hybrid almost every night in the garage for up to 3 days without driving or charging it and have never had a problem.
In my 18 months reading this forum it really seems that folks either have all kinds of problems or everything works as designed. I feel bad for those who got the bad draw but encourage you to pursue your state's lemon law. Its a pain but if you can get one that works as designed you'll be much happier. And the 2nd $7,500 credit really helps on your TCO.
